My story goes all the way back to high school, I can still remember always admiring women who were into fitness. I’ve always wanted to look the part, and was always very conscious about my weight, in high school I was very average and chubby, without knowing better I ate fast food at least three times a week, no surprise I gained a lot of weight. I was 18 when I had my first son and now my life wasn’t just about me anymore, and somehow, we seem to lose ourselves, not long after I had our daughter, and two more boys!
My Body Makeover Challenge started just after I miscarried our 5th baby at 16 weeks, there I was, almost halfway through my pregnancy, gained quite a considerable amount of weight due to morning sickness and the only thing that gave me some relief was eating, no baby. Mentally I did not like what I saw when I looked at myself, I literally avoided mirrors. I decided that it’s my turn! My turn to take back my life, take back my body, time to see what my body is capable of.
I bought the BMC Starter kit, joined the gym and met with the owner and discussed the Challenge, I asked him if it was even possible to go from fat to six pack abs in just 12 weeks, and when he said ‘Yes its possible’, I was sold! I knew it was going to be tough, but I was determined to make it through and believe me, when I put my mind to something, I give it 100%!
The hardest thing about the Challenge for me was eating as often as I needed, I was so surprised by how much food I’m supposed to eat, but I ate every meal like I was instructed by my personal trainer and trained twice a day for most of the days. When I felt demotivated, I logged on to the USN website, read some success stories and felt like I could take on the world!
As I approached the final 4 weeks my body really started to take shape drastically, and it was like my body loved the exercise and healthy lifestyle, I wasn’t as tired as I always was, I had to take a nap every single day just to get through the day, that changed in the first two weeks! I felt great! Of course, I couldn’t have done it without my PhedraCut XT, Diet Fuel for when I didn’t have time to prep and daily multi vitamins.
At the 12 week mark I was so emotional to just look at myself in a mirror, I couldn’t believe my eyes, I made it, I lost my fat and got my abs! All in just 12 weeks! It’s an amazing feeling!
Now a year later, I’m still fit and healthy. In our small town so many moms felt the same way I did, and they saw me as an inspiration. I love helping and guiding women to reach their goals and push their limits, it’s amazing what the human body is capable of when you just believe and work hard. I love my new body! I love USN for making my dreams come true and making me feel like a new woman!
